Introduction to Reactive Gas Dynamics

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the Navier-Stokes equations for a gaseous system in vibrational and/or chemical non-equilibrium, and proposes various forms. The equations are written in a dimensionless form so that dimensionless numbers are defined, characterizing the relative influence of the physical processes involved in the equations. Typical particular flows are presented such as one and two-dimensional flows, isentropic, and dissipative flows. Problems related to gas-solid and gas-liquid interfaces, flow stability, entropy and global balances, dimensional analysis, and magnetohydrodynamics are also briefly discussed.

Keywords:   Navier-Stokes equations, dimensionless numbers, global balance, entropy balance, interface, dimensional analysis, magnetohydrodynamics
